Pod
When the hanging bronze counterweight is shoved, the vertical section swings back and forth. The upper and lower sections swing and flex in different rhythms, the lower part acting as a pendulum, the upper part acting as a spring, affecting each other, eventually returning to rest in the vertical position. Located at 10th and SW Burnside, Portland, OR. Commissioned by the City of Portland through the Regional Arts and Culture Council.
